.com live. and so, there was all this kerfuffle yesterday about the exchange between dianne feinstein and senator ted cruz of texas. he challenged her with whether you could similarly limit the first amendment rights and the fourth amendment that protects from search and seizure and so on in the way he thinks she's trying to do to second amendment rights. this was all over the broadcast yesterday. i ask you this, chris, as much attention as that got and we're going to show the viewers point of that in a minute. what was the point? because as of right now, are there even arguably the votes for the thing in the senate, the full senate or the house? >> megyn, don't start raising the bar for-- or lowering the bar for pointlessness in washington d.c., we'd all be out of a job in no time. come on, no, i kid a little. >> megyn: can that be done? can one lower that bar? >> well, congress is trying. we try, this city tries all the time, but the truth is that the exchange is important in this pay, that it encapsulates pretty well, what these two points of view are that dianne feinstein did not
, democrat dianne feinstein on the constitution. >> the question i would pose to the senior senator from california is would she deem it consistent with the bill of rights for congress to engage in the same endeavor that we are contemplating doing with the second amendment in the context of the first or fourth amendment? >> senator veteran feinstein was not amused. >> i'm not a sixth grader. senator, i have been on this committee for 20 years. it study the constitution myself. i am reasonably well educated. and i thank you for the lecture. >> the fireworks were not shocking considering the emotion on both sides over gun control. this legislation is the most controversial of the four considered by the judiciary committee following the newtown connecticut school shooting which left 20 children and six adults dead. the measure would ban manufacturer, sale and use of 157 firearms. it would limit ammunition magazines to ten rounds. leading republican says it isn't fair to law-abiding citizens seeking protection. >> it's not much satisfaction to say that criminals will have access to whole ran

not to give me a vote on this would be a major betrayal of trust. lou: senator dianne feinstein is not happy with senator harry reid. as you heard her they're insisting she will give up her fight to pass a ban on assault weapons for a second time, despite her dramatic rhetoric today, the senators facts to not quite lineup. kelli, asking americans in late january what approach congress and the president should focus on, well, to prevent further school shootings for example. just 30%, 30 percent responded that they should focus on passing new laws on the sales of guns and ammunition. want to repeat, only 30%. 65 percent said that they should focus of school security measures and the mental health system. by the way, i want to give credit to wayne lapierre of the nra. right now the nra is the only organization or voice that has stood up and said precisely what the solution is, and it is, by the way, in place and author of the public schools in this country. it needs to be in wondered%. senate majority leader harry reid says the assault weapons ban had fewer, as he put it -- this is his language
know senator feinstein wants to move on. last year, the nsa director was at a conference and he was asked about the nsa surveillance of america. he replied, "the story that we have millions or hundreds of millions dossiers on people is completely false." having served on the committee now for a dozen years, i don't really know what a dossier is in this context. so what i wanted to see, if you could give me a yes or no answer to the question, does the nsa collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of americans? >> no, sir. >> it does not? >> not wittingly. there are cases where they could inadvertently perhaps collect but not willingly. >> i have additional questions to give you in writing. i thank you for your answer. tojust to answer -- just follow on his questions, we keep talking about al qaeda. but my impression -- we have to realize that it only takes four or five people these days to mount some kind of a threat. is there a danger that we are so focused on al qaeda that we will miss a second cousin of al qaeda that arises in brazil or someplace that

intelligence committees right now. we're joined by senator diane feinstein and mike rogers. the republican from michigan. let's talk about syria first, senator feinstein. how serious do you take these reports that chemical weapons were used either by the rebels or the syrian regime? >> the senate this afternoon was briefed. this is one of continuing briefs. i think any public response should come from the white house. let me just say, it is serious. and it may well take some action. >> because when you say may well take some action, congressman, you know that the president, not that long ago, said if chemical weapons were used by bashir al assad's regime, that's a game changer as far as the u.s. is concerned. are you with him on that? >> absolutely. i think the president is exactly right. i argued before, we had reports, if you recall last summer, that they had at least public reports where they moved munitions in a place where they could be used on a short notice. and there's some configuration they have to go through to be used on a short notice. that was alarming and concerning. now, they ne
in the house. his counterpart in the senate, dianne feinstein, both say based on briefings they received very high probability that syria's regime used weapons of mass destruction. that has been called a red line issue by president obama who warned syria's dictator bashar al-assad that he should not cross that line. bill: the white house has been briefed and the white house has to make some decisions in this. i think the days are becoming more desperate and the regime is more desperate and we know where the chemical weapons are, end quote. peter doocy leads the coverage in washington. how certain are the lawmakers that chemical weapons have been used, peter? >> reporter: not 100% certain, bill but senator feinstein says lawmakers have seen the same intelligence the white house has seen. mike rogers the chairman of the house intelligence committee said in an interview about syria i have a high probability to believe that chemical weapons were used w we need the final verification. i, mike rogers, chairman. intelligence committee would come to the conclusion they are either positioned for use o
senator dianne feinstein will not be included in the democratic gun control legislation that currently is working its way through the chamber. instead reid says feinstein's proposal will have, quote, an opportunity for a vote, possibly as a separate amendment. now this effort was sparked by the newtown school shooting in december and since then, we have seen a surge in applications for gun permits across this country. according to the fbi we saw a record 19 1/2 million background checks for firearms last year. nearly three million of them coming in december alone. that is the most for any month on record. and more than 7 million from december through february. that is a 54% increase from the previous year. this national trend is echoed in the microcosm of newtown, connecticut. where law enforcement say they have seen the pace of applications for gun permits double. so what does this all mean for the gun control debate, an effort going forward? joining me fox news political analyst juan williams. juan, we can talk about the strategy here and move onto the legislation itself. why, why di
't a close call. this was a body blow. senator feinstein vows to keep fighting. >> this is very important to me. and i'm not going to lay down and play dead. i think the american people are said in every single public poll that they support this kind of legislation. it's aimed to protect children. to protect schools and malls. not to give me a vote on this would be a major betrayal of trust. >> to that last point, reid told feinstein the bill could be offered as an amendment at a later time. on the heels of this set-back we were given some rare good news from a state with a significant history with gun violence. today governor of colorado signed into to law some of the toughest safety measures of the country. >> the new law extipds background checks. it closes a loophole that had exempted firearm sales at gun shows from back ground checks. the laws also limit the size of ammunition magazines to 15 rounds and eight shotgun shells. >> but even that progress was tainted by tragedy. he signed the legislation just hours after members of his own cabinet was shutdown. he was gunned down in his o
leader harry reid acknowledged one bill-- an assault weapons ban crafted by california's dianne feinstein-- did not have enough support to move forward. >> but right now her amendment, using the most optimistic numbers, has less than 40 votes. i-- that's not 60. >> woodruff: a disappointed feinstein later said on cnn that she will not play dead on the issue, adding reid assured her she will have a chance to offer the ban as an amendment to a larger bill. >> if it's an amendment, that is not a symbolic vote. i did the bill in 1994 on the floor as an amendment. it enacted a law. it went on to the house. it was enacted. what senator reid told me is that i would have an opportunity for a vote. i take him at his word. >> woodruff: for now, reid and senate democrats are trying to find a way to get other measures passed. that includes an expansion of background checks, new penalties for gun trafficking and for so- called straw purchases-- when other individuals buy guns for those who aren't authorized to own them. reid is aiming for votes sometime after the easter recess. but there's still litt
feinstein, approved by the full committee on a party-line vote, ten democrats and eight republicans, and they advanced the ball to the full senate floor for a vote. the measure is certain to face intense scrutiny from republicans to say they consider the bill to be an ineffective response to a genuine problem. the vote coming after the judiciary committee advanced another gun-control bill earlier this week that would require universal background checks. well, white house press secretary jay carney today confirmed that president obama has taken up in control during his so-called charm offensive while on capitol hill. however, offering this confusing and somewhat nonsensical description of just where president obama stance on the second amendment. >> he is having conversations with and has had conversations with lawmakers in both parties about all the aspects of his proposals, including his support for the assault weapons ban and he has encouraged lawmakers to support it and understands that these are tough issues. but he makes the point in every conversation that he has about this th
for the floor angered dianne feinstein, who is not giving up. >> this is very important to me. i'm not going to lay down and play dead. i think the american people have said in every single public poll that they support this kind of legislation. >>> joining me now for more on that, and all the other political news, for our daily fix, chris cillizza, and susan page. hi to both of you. while i'm away, you let the assault weapons ban die, practically, at least harry reid says he's not going to let it go forward. susan, his calculus is that it didn't have the votes and he wanted to have something passed. that's good tactics in terms of the senate, but isn't it surrendering to the nra? >> well, it's a cold calculation. what can get through the senate, the straw purchasing provision my biblt get through the senate. it's possible that university background checks, to gun shows and other venues might get through, but there was no way an assault weapons ban was going to get through this senate. not only because reps were opposed. we had half a dozen democratic senators expressing opposition or raisin

reid said it didn't have the votes to pass. senator dianne feinstein who introduced the ban said it this way. i cannot fight the nra. the nra spends unlimited sums backed by the gun manufacturer who are craven in my view. i don't know what we can done other than drafting a bill. in asking for support and enabling something to pass in the senate now i could put a hold on the whole package but i'm not going to do that. so instead the rest of the gun safety bill will go forward without the assault weapons ban. of course there is a possibility it could be attached to a later bill but certainly there is not a guarantee. gun safety is fast becoming a low priority in washington. and another is immigration. john boehner praised the bipartisan house group working on immigration legislation. >> there are a lot of issues in here that have to be dealt with and i think what this bipartisan group came up with is frankly a pretty responsible solution. >> michael: sounds like progress but of course this being washington self promotion is as much a priority as actual legislation. in these days no
's talking about dianne feinstein's assault weapons ban, which she wanted to be part of the main bill so it had a chance of passing. harry reid says it doesn't. now, dianne feinstein promises that the fight is not over and she claims that senator reid did tell her that this would be offered as an amendment on the senate floor, but-- >> it came out on 10-8 vote of the judiciary committee not to give me a vote would be a major betrayal of trust. >> megyn: joining me now to discuss that, monica crowley, she's a radio talk show host and kirsten powers, the daily beast,both are fox news contributors. and it's spin and hope that has no foundation in reality? i mean, do we all agree that her assault weapons ban for all intents and purposes is dead? offering it as a amendment, as an amendment does nothing. it will not pass. it had very little chance of passing as part of the main bill and now it's offered this way, zero chance. >> well, look, when the president did this as a state of the union, it was meant to shame the republicans. what was left unsaid was that ocrats weren't going to support i

not. so when he suggests to dianne feinstein. >> or lectures. >> or lectures she is violating the second amendment that this impinges on second amendment right that is false. this isn't opinion. this is fact. read the damn case law. he keeps doing it and it's driving me crazy because he is supposedly a learned man. >> i think has leads to the next point. we are talking about politics. senator cruz has not just on these issues but on a variety of issues has decided he is going to stake out some turf that is right in the sweet spot of the most conservative, most populist, most red meat tea party elements of his party and decided to do it on a variety of things. he has done it on chuck hagel and done it throughout and with a tone of disrespect that is upsetting a lot of republicans and upsetting a lot of democrats every time he rares his head since he has been in the senate. he hasn't been there very long. he takes this tone and adopted this position to advance some kind of a gender that is trying to get him in a particular place with the republican party. >> i don't mind people
that will succeed. >> senator dianne feinstein who sponsored the ban was clearly irritated. the california democrat told reporters, obviously, i'm disappointed. i tried my best but my best i guess was not good enough. you'd think congress would listen but they clearly listened to the national rifle association and they do. the ban would have outlawed it nearly 160 semiautomatic weapons and limited the size of magazines to ten rounds. and in today's "daily news" a removal of the assault rifle ban saying, quote. any fool knows that ryan lanza couldn't have possibly have killed as many children as quickly as he did on this morning december 14th without an assault weapon in his hand. so how does the president and any big if not now for a ban on these weapons, when? if sandy hook elementary doesn't make every member of congress take a stand against assault weapons in this country, then what does? this moment, the moment of newtown, of sandy hook, elementary, should not be lost because if it is, maybe it is lost forever. it was officially lost in washington on tuesday, lost to fear and lost to ignorance
. >> senator dianne feinstein admitted that she had her gun ban bill ready to go a year ago. tucked away in a drawer, just waiting for the right opportunity. really? waiting for an unspeakable tragedy to push her political agenda? is there any wonder why most americans don't trust congress? they're simply not serious about making our kids or our country safer. >> with me now is jamey wams an msnbc contributor and democratic strategist. thanks for being here. >> thank you, maria. >> he's talking to conservatives, but this is broadcast to a national audience. is this the kind of message that resonates with a lot of the country? >> i don't think so, i think he's a big fish in a little, teeny pond. he's basically speaking for all intents and purposes to the tea party faction of the republican party. you know, i did a thing yesterday with huff post live, a abby huntsman was the host. she said we've got to take the republican party back. that's the mainstream in my opinion of independent-thinking republican voters these days. what wayne lapierre is doing this, is drumming up the concentrated b
24 hours? chr chris cillizza is back with us. die an feinstein saying that. it does not have the in divide government. >> the political reality here, not part of the main guns package with an acknowledgement if it was part of it, any kind of bigger package wouldn't pass. feinstein did say that it will get a vote as an amendment to the main bill. it will get a vote on the floor. we've expected this for a long time. i would say many gun control supporters have expected this. there just are not the votes in the senate for something like this. because lots of conservative democrats or democrats in conservative leaning states wouldn't vote for an assault weapons ban at this time. >> it hasn't really been a story since it expired in '04. probably won't come up for a while. thank you for joining us. that does it for this edition of "andrea mitchell reports." i'm luke russert. andrea is back tomorrow from jerusalem traveling with president obama and secretary ari. richard is in for tamron hall today. rid of, my friend, tate away. >> luke russert, always good to sigh. seven marines ki
with these weapons. >> that was senator dianne feinstein and junior senator ted cruz of texas in a heated exchange on whether to restore assault weapons ban which was passed under former president clinton and then allowed to expire under former president george w. bush. the bill ultimately passed the senate judiciary committee 10-8 along party lines. but after all that outrage and bluster, we've learned that senate majority leader harry reid has decided to remove the assault weapons ban from a larger reform package. it will, instead, be voted on as an amendment. nbc's mike viqueira joins us live now. mike, what happened? why did the majority leader decide that 157 different models of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines did not deserve to be a part of a broader bill to ensure that tragedies like that in aurora, in newtown, connecticut, never happen again? what's happened? >> reporter: well, you know, harry reid was faced with a very fundamental question, martin. he could put on what is essentially an unpopular measure, dianne feinstein notwithstanding, and that's a renewal of the assault we
's listen to what senator dianne feinstein had to say. >> the enemies on this are very powerful. i've known that all my life. it doesn't take a weapon away from anyone. i mean, my goodness, the nra says there are 2 million of these or 3 million of them whatever it is in the country already. how many assault weapons do you need in the united states of america? >> joining me now a democrat from connecticut. senator, it's very good to see you. thank you for joining me. >> thank you, alex. >> i'd like at the cover of "the daily news" here in new york. it shows the pictures of the victims of sandy hook elementary. right there in the center, "shame on u.s." senator blumenthal, what happened here? and do you agree about the power of so-called enemies? is this what made harry reid reverse his promise to bring this bill to the senate floor? >> you're right, alex, to describe this assault weapon ban proposal as the most ambitious. we always knew it was going to be an uphill fight. we always knew that the opponents were staunch, ruthless and relentless. and harry reid has done what may be the smart ta
. this is nature valley. nature at its most delicious. >>> to politics now where senator dianne feinstein is frustrated over the assault weapons ban. now, the ban won't be part of a democratic gun bill that will come to the floor next month. instead, it will be an amendment, which is a sure sign of low support and it will probably be defeated. feinstein told politico to ask harry reid why the decision was made. >>> tomorrow colorado's governor is expected to sign tough new gun legislation, including expanded background checks and limits on ammunition clips. meantime, on the immigration front, republican senator rand paul is endorsing a path to citizenship. in a speech this morning he said, quote, if you wish to live and work in america, then we will find a place for you. >>> the producers of the mini series "the bible" are pushing back after countless comparisons are being made between the actor who plays satan in that mini series and president obama. producer mark brunette calls it utter nonsense and says the actor who plays satan played similar characters years before the president was
, i hope we can do this with just a yes or no answer and i know senator feinstein wants to move on. last year, the nsa director was at a conference and he was asked about the nsa surveillance of america. he replied, "the story that we have millions or hundreds of millions dossiers on people is completely false." having served on the committee now for a dozen years, i don't really know what a dossier is in this context. so what i wanted to see, if you could give me a yes or no answer to the question, does the nsa collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of americans? >> no, sir. >> it does not? >> not wittingly. there are cases where they could inadvertently perhaps collect but not willingly. >> i have additional questions to give you in writing. i thank you for your answer. >> just to answer -- just to follow on his questions, we keep talking about al qaeda. but my impression -- we have to realize that it only takes four or five people these days to mount some kind of a threat. is there a danger that we are so focused on al qaeda that we will miss a secon
to the senator feinstein's proposal, please limitations on high capacity ammunition magazines, and i think everybody has given as many statements as they want to give. i will yield to the senator and then we will go right to the -- the senior senator of california and the senator from texas. >> i will not speak any more on the legislation before us unless senator feinstein forgot what i said. >> none of us have. >> thank you. as long as i have the floor, i will say what we normally say about what is on the agenda. we have two nominees on the agenda. we have a request on our side to hold them over. i will not have to repeat that when you take that business up. in regard to the rest of the markup, just one sentence. maybe i will say a procedural thing. i know we have amendments on our side and even though i do not have anything to say on the bill further, i hope we respect everybody's right to offer amendments, whoever on our side wants to do that. the only thing i want to say is i am still amazed, after we have had two hearings, we have still not seen an announcement -- an analysis. that is
cruz challenged feinstein, senator dianne feinstein on the bill's constitutionality. and watch this. >> the second amendment and bill of rights provides that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. the question i would pose to the senior senator from california is, would she deem it consistent with the bill of rights for congress to engage in the same endeavor that we are contemplating doing with the second amendment in the context of the first or fourth amendment? >> i'm not a sixth grader. senator, i've been on this committee for 20 years. it is fine you want to lecture me on the constitution. i appreciate it. just know i've been here for a long time. i have passed on a number of bills. i studied the constitution myself. i am reasonably well-educated. and i thank you for the lecture. incidentally, this does prohibit, you used word prohibit. it exempts 2271 weapons. is that enough for the people in the united states. >> mr. chairman? >> do you need a ba seaaca? do they need other high-powered weapons that military people use to kill in closed combat? i

the united states senate was unable to do. dianne feinstein's ban did not pass on the floor vote because harry reid decided they were not going it to put it in their gun bill that they're going to put on the floor. it's an assaults weapons ban. over 200 weapons are still available to americans. but no, this was not good enough. the reason was because reid and other democratic senators were afraid of how it would play. max baucus of montana jon tester of montana. mark begich of ark heidi keitkamp and joe maughan. they're running scared. if they all band together and said you know what we're going to do this, they would be with the american people. it turns out this time they were not with the american people. and then of course "abc news" washington poll post conducted march 7th shows 57% of americans support assault weapons ban. 41% oppose it. 57% of americans support it. why cannot the senate get that through their heads? why can't they sit there and say, you know what, this is what the people want. let's vote on it. 57 is the smallest majority for any of these gun laws. we've heard 91%
senator dianne feinstein who rarely lets people get her, quote, dander up. well, she let him get her dander up yesterday. >> it seems to me that all of us should begin as our foundational document with the constitution. and the second amendment in the bill of rights provides that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. >> i'm not a sixth grader. senator, i've been on this committee for 20 years. i was a mayor for nine years. i walked in. i saw people shot. i've looked at bodies that have been shot with these weapons. >> one more thing on the 2016 front in our weekly look at this, vice president biden is embracing the idea of bidenisms in a brilliant branding effort from the vice president's office, the white house's latest foray into digital media is now an audio series called "being biden." the first episode features a picture from a stop made by serving dinner to a hunting group last week. >> these guys have the ethic, an ethic that i find most sportsmen have. i know these guys. and i know an awful lot of them. been doing it for over 30 years. they're
, feinstein's proposal and others. what david is pointing out, what you are seeing is similar to the anti-tobacco debate and apartheid debate where congress and washington were the lagging indicators of public opinion so you saw a lot of action happening in the states. colorado is not just the only place, a number of there states are thinking object taking action. it's a much, much better indicator of how quickly public opinion is shifting on something. i think you will see movement in the states and eventually you will see movement at the federal level as well. >> i hope that's the case. david, one-third of homes in colorado have a gun. including of course, the governor's. but the shootings in aurora profoundly effected him. especially after attending so many funerals. i have to ask you, is that what it takes to get changes to the legislation passed? i mean, should we send every member of the house of representatives to the next series of funerals when there's a mass shooting so that they can actually feel the profound impact of these weapons on the life of ordinary citizens of this coun
to require a criminal background check for criminals. >> well, senator feinstein and obviously the assault weapons ban was really what she was pushing hardest. but she says it's the nra, it shows how much clout they have in washington. in spite of the fact that since newtown there had been some talk about whether their power had been diluted. what do you think is going on here? >> well, since newtown, over 3,000 more americans have died from guns. 87 americans that woke up today will be dead from firearms. assault weapons in these high-capacity ammunition clips are the weapons of choice and the common denominator in all of the mass shootings. when i go for a duck hunting license, i'm limited to three rounds to protect the duck population. but congress says it's perfectly fine for the criminals and mentally ill to have 30 and 100-round clips to fight police officers who are limited to 13 to 15 rounds. what's going on here isn't so much the nra, it's cowardice in congress. it's allowing the uniquely unregulated gun industry to buy congress and intimidate the democrats and own the republicans
